          The purpose of this predictive correlation study were to: 1) examine the level of online learning behaviors among nursing students, and 2) investigate the predictive factors of the online learning behaviors among nursing students. Sample were 170 nursing students by stratified random sampling from the lower northern region, Thailand. Data were collected by using online questionnaire, the online learning behaviors and the factors influencing online learning behavior questionnaire include seven aspects; Observe learning, Self-efficacy, Self-regulation, Achievement motive, Intention, Environment

and Social support. The questionnaire was reviewed by five experts. The content validity index  were .93, .94, .95, .90, .95, .96, .98 and .98 respectively. Cronbach's alpha coefficient reliability were .88, .97, .96, .95, .95, .97, .92, .93 and .84 respectively. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistic such as frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, and Stepwise multiple regression analysis was performed as inferential statistic. The results were as follows:

1) The online learning behaviors of nursing students was at the highest level ( = 4.17, SD =.35)

2) The factors influencing the online learning behaviors of nursing students of the lower northern region were self-regulation, observe learning and achievement motive. Those factors can predict 63.60 % of variance of the online learning behaviors with statistical significance (p<.01)
